The Jain cuisine is completely vegan and excludes the consumption of food items which are produced under the earth, such as onion, brinjal, garlic, etc. to prevent injuries to microorganisms. Jain food is very much sattvic. As per Jain texts, a sravaska (householder) shouldn’t consume wine, flesh, honey and five udumbara fruits (Gular, Anjeera, Banyan, Peepal & Pakar). Root vegetables are basically the storage organs of the plants and are specifically modified for the storage of energy or water. Such underground areas help in the survival of many living organisms present surrounding such roots.
